ABOUT THE DESIGN – NGARGA WARENDJ (DANCING WOMBAT)

Womindjeka is what we say to friends and strangers when we welcome them onto our country. We offer them a gum leaf as their passport and they must observe Bunjils law. Bunjil the wedge tailed eagle is the creator spirit for the Kulin people.

The five gumleaves represent the five language groups that make up the Kulin Nation: Boonwurrung, Woiwurrung, Taungwurrung, Wadawurrung, and Djadjawurrung.

The shields represent our individuality and the protection of our families. All the symbols are unique to South Eastern Australia and they demonstrate connection to our country.

ABOUT THE ARTIST – MICK HARDING

Mick Harding was born in Melbourne and belongs to the Yowung-Illam-Baluk clan of the Taungurung people. This is a tribe of the Kulin nation.

He draws inspiration from the legends of his people which inspire his original artworks, and reflect the unique symbols and artifacts of South East Australia.

Not only are his works very beautiful, but also each of the artworks he creates is linked to a indigenous story.
